5 Vixens Who Should Create Their Own Documentary

"I always battle with 'How much do I reveal about myself?'"

Beyoncé's question was answered on Saturday night as HBO premiered Life is But a Dream, a documentary produced by and starring the pop star herself.  She's known for baring her soul on the stage, but her personal life is kept tightly under wraps from both fans and critics.

For the first time, we got to witness the ins and outs of King Bey's chaotic schedule. From planning an epic Billboard Awards performance to suffering a miscarriage to hiding a pregnant belly, her intimate commentary was the soundtrack over the never-before-seen footage. And whether you still yearn for the "real juice" or love her even more, our appetites for an exclusive pass into the life of a superstar is satisfied for now.

Here are a few other Vixens we'd like to see tell their story through a documentary.

Vanessa Bryant

No. She wasn't physically with him shooting in the gym, but caring for two children and being Kobe Bryant's wife seems a only a task for a strong woman. We would love to see the life of a real basketball wife through Mrs. Mamba's eyes. How do you forgive a cheating husband? Just how scandalous is the world of sports? We think Vanessa could more than answer these questions.

Little by little we're getting introduced to Karrueche, but we still can't imagine what this girl does on a day-to-day basis. If Karrueche really turned the cameras on herself, we know that a lot of girls could relate to her situation, despite the high profile names attached to her popularity.

Kate Middleton

Every little girl wants to be a princess but few know how demanding it can be. As this generation's Princess Diana, Kate would be the first of her kind to let us normal folk in on a truly royal life. We're also anxious to see that baby bump!

Mona Scott Young

She loves turning the cameras on everyone else, but what about her own reality? We see her on reunion specials and hear her narrating, but who is the lady responsible for everyone's guilty TV pleasures?

Kerry Washington

We just love this Vixen too much! She went from zero to sixty in 2012 with a starring role in both TV series Scandal and Oscar-nominated film Django Unchained. And now, she's simply everywhere. We'd love to know her Bronx to Hollywood tale, is she more like Olivia Pope than she puts on and who's the lucky Mr. Washingotn? We're curious to hear and see.

Vixens, who else would you like to see make a documentary on themselves?

Kelly Rowland Says Her Highly-Anticipated Project Is "Definitely Coming"

Six years ago, Kelly Rowland released her fourth studio album titled Talk a Good Game. The project boasted hit singles like "Kisses Down Low" and the transparent "Dirty Laundry." Now, the Houston native is preparing to release a project that'll surely satisfy fans' patient earbuds.

In an interview with Billboard, Rowland shared her hopes for putting out a new body of work and the pressure that she's encountered since she's been in the studio. "This is by far the longest, most pressure-filled process ever, only because I know what it's supposed to be and I have been so hard on myself. I know it," she said. "And it's the first time I've said it out loud. I've been extremely hard on myself. But it's definitely coming, and I'm more so excited about this project than anything else."

The news follows the recent release of Rowland's "Kelly" track, which was met with critical acclaim in November 2018. In addition to preparing the release of new music, the "Motivation" singer discussed fans' wish for a Destiny's Child reunion. The rumors have been fueled by social media photographs of Rowland with either Beyonce or Michelle or all three, especially during Beyonce's past Coachella performance. But Rowland assures readers that it's not what they think.

"It's so funny. I guess every time people see us together, they just see music but I see sisterhood, and that's what we are and that's what me, her, Michelle [Williams] and Solange and I are. People see us all together, they immediately think music. I'm like, no. Just family." As Rowland previously mentioned Solange, she hopes to one day work with her again.

"I'm a huge fan," she said. "I love her writing and how detailed and particular she is. I always wanted to figure out how the heck she has so many different layers of harmonies when she is constructing these vocals, and it's so complex but simple. It's genius. It's the genius in her genius mind that she has in there." One of the last times the pair collaborated was on Rowland's "Simply Deep" track off her debut solo album of the same name. Solange also penned a few songs off the same project. Fast forward to 2016, and Rowland's vocals were featured on Solange's iconic A Seat at the Table.

Teyana Taylor To Pay Homage To Ballroom Culture In "WTP" Video

Teyana Taylor aims to keep her hot streak of innovative videos coming thanks to this recent announcement. Taking to Instagram on Wednesday (Jan. 9), the "Gonna Love Me" singer will show adoration to ballroom culture in the visual for "WTP."

Directed by Gregory "Beef" Jones, The Aunties Inc., and Taylor herself, the Harlemite takes viewers on her journey to the expression-filled space where she hopes to rack up 10s across the board from a group of judges. The premise of the video also seems to follow a mockumentary format airing on a fictional network named FEMTV. Alongside Taylor, other men and women get ready to display their talents and confidence on the ballroom floor.

"WTP" is featured on the mother-of-one's sophomore album, K.T.S.E., which was released in June 2018. While the rollout's controversy didn't entirely muddle the excitement behind the project's debut, Taylor said she was sold on the idea that her album would be treated as the biggest out of G.O.O.D. Music's string of releases last year.

"I didn't know ahead of time that there wouldn't be any singles or visuals. But I knew that it was going to be the five-album thing," she said during a HOT 97 interview. "[Kanye] wanted [my album] to be last, he wanted mine to be the biggest. That's the way they sauced it up. I was sold."

The video will debut on Jan. 19. Check out the teaser below.

Trina Braxton’s Ex-Husband, Gabe Solis, Dies After Battle With Cancer

Gabe Solis, the ex-husband of Trina Braxton, lost his battle with cancer, Thursday (Dec. 20),  TMZ reports. He was 43.

Solis passed away at his home in Texas, surrounded by friends and family, according to the outlet. No official details have been released about his passing.

Solis had reportedly been keeping his cancer battle private. His death came as a shock to his loved ones. On Friday (Dec. 21), Braxton seemingly mourned the loss of her ex-husband with a cryptic Instagram meme reading, “I need a hug..E bottle of wine.”

The former couple tied the knot in 2003, and appeared together on previous seasons of WEtv’s Braxton Family Values. Despite finalizing their divorce in 2015, Braxton and Solis confronted lingering issues from their marriage during an episode of Iyanla: Fix My Life, earlier in the year.

Braxton has since moved on to a new relationship, but remained friends with Solis.
